Visa to Algeria

Algeria is a large country in North Africa with a rich history and culture. To enter Algeria, citizens of most countries need to obtain a visa in advance. The visa regime of the People's Democratic Republic of Algeria regulates the conditions of entry into the country for foreign citizens. Most travelers need to obtain a visa at the embassy or consulate of Algeria.

Currently, visa-free regime applies to citizens of 7 African countries for up to 90 days. Israeli citizens are not allowed to enter Algeria, even in transit. Other foreign citizens need a visa regardless of the purpose of travel - tourism, work, study, transit. The visa is issued only in the form of a paper sticker in the passport. The validity period depends on the type of visa.

According to the official rules, citizens of 235 countries are obliged to obtain a tourist visa regardless of the period of stay in the country. This requires personal appearance at the consulate, interview and submission of supporting documents. Due to the long processing time (up to several weeks), it is recommended to submit documents in advance by making an appointment at the consular office.
